Hello.: Hello. This falls under the perview of podiatry. The problem with bathroom surgery is that, if you do not have a good functional understanding of area being worked on, it may not work or you may end up with unforseen complications (such as infections). As the nail grows into one or both sides of the paronychium (nail bed) is likely to become more painful and can become infected. At this point, you are getting recurrence of the ingrowing of the nail (onychocryptosis). You also noted that there is no nail growth from the base. If the nail issue is not addressed appropriately, you could develop a chronic abnormality of the nail (i.e., crooked). One approach is a partial wedge resection, in which the podiatrist cuts back part of the lateral nail plate. Sometimes the nail needs to be removed. I suggest you see a podiatrist for assistance.
